Le Soleil

Based in the light diffusion capabilities of polycarbonate, Spanish designer Vicente Garcia Jimenez designed the pendant lamp Le Soleil.

A series of asymmetrical conical pieces of polycarbonate are assembled into a large sphere-like shape, the minimal size difference between the pieces allow the light to filter out, creating a nice effect of shadows, transparency and colour shades that recall the intelligent use of light and materials of the Nordic masterpieces. 
The outcome is a highly sculptural object, best appreciated in its coloured versions.

But shortly after all this revealed to be a product of our unquiet imagination: he is for real, thank goodness.
